#CES | Salvage Hyundai with four legs

When you have a tsunami, earthquake or other catastrophe, the lifeguards are forced to navigate the wreckage on foot, which requires a lot of time. To solve this problem, Hundai and Studio of innovative technologies Detroit, Sundberg-Ferar for more than two years to develop Elevate — hybrid car and a robot with four legs. It is reported that he will be able to drive on the roads, step over the wide cracks and even climbing the small wall. The concept is an intriguing vehicle was finally shown at CES 2019.

About the features Elevate the Vice-President of Hundai John su. Each of the four legs of an unusual vehicle is equipped with a wheel with individual drive. Limbs able to move in different directions — such flexibility to provide moving mechanisms in the field of "pelvis", "knee" and "Shin" of the robot. Wheels can turn 360 degrees around the vertical axis.

While driving on normal roads Hundai Elevate almost indistinguishable from conventional cars, as the limbs folded under the body. However, in difficult terrain with large stones or a thick layer of snow it is transformed to four limbs lift the body high crew upstairs. The developers claim that the Elevate is able to crawl like a reptile and climb to a height of about 1.5 meters.

a robotic vehicle connected to the battery with a capacity of 66 kWh. The developers chose this power source because it is just enough to overcome a 35-metre track Rubicon, located in the Sierra Nevada. It was there, on riverbeds, rocks and scree are race tested SUVs and Jeep vehicles.

It is Reported that the Elevate will be useful not only rescuers, but also for people with disabilities. For example, he can lift people in wheelchairs right up to the threshold of the house. However, it is not clear what will be the price of a robotic transport and can afford regular people. At the moment it is only a concept, and the release date is unknown.

What do you think, in what year will we see a working prototype Elevate, and so he will be useful as they say? It may be that the vast machinery going around in the places of disasters, may harm the victims under the rubble. My opinion about technology, it is possible to Express in the comments or at .
